Dear SW List Members!
Kathleen Heylen, in Belgium, along with Sara Geudens, are teachers at  
the Kasterlinden School for the Deaf in Brussels, Belgium. It is a bi- 
lingual program, teaching Flemish Sign Language and Flemish spoken  
language (Dutch). SignWriting is used in the classroom, as the  
written-form for Flemish Sign Language:
